Thomas Mansfield Solicitors Limited in Charing Cross specialise in all aspects of private client work including advising on inheritance tax planning, drafting wills and powers of attorney, trusts, probate and applications in the Court of Protection.

Writing a will is one of life’s major legal decisions but it is surprising how few people have one despite the potentially negative impact of dying intestate can have on loved ones and dependents. Our solicitors are experts in drafting wills for a wide range of personal circumstances and can help ensure your estate is left to the persons of your choice rather than the state.
In addition to a will, you should have a lasting power of attorney to ensure that should you ever lose capacity through illness or accident, someone of your choice can make important decisions on your behalf. Decisions regarding your care, welfare and finances can be made on your behalf by someone you trust.
Billions of pounds are paid every year to HMRC in inheritance tax from the estates of people who did not consider any tax planning when drafting a will or they have died intestate without a will. This means that for every pound you leave above the threshold, forty percent could be taken by HMRC. The payment of inheritance tax can be minimised with careful tax planning. Our inheritance tax planning solicitors have years of experience in assisting people with estates of all sizes and complexities in order to minimise the payment of inheritance tax, capital gains tax and income tax upon death. Contact us now for further information or set up an appointment 0203 994 7778.
After an individual has died the executors of the will need to make an application for a grant of probate to enable them to realise the financial value in the estate and pay off any debts before distributing to the beneficiaries. The process of administering the estate of someone who has died is called probate (where there is a will). It can be a difficult time for the executors because they are often family members and going through a period of grieving. It can also be a difficult process over an extended period of time. Our private client solicitors have extensive experience in dealing with all aspects of probate on behalf of the executors and can take control of the process. Contact us today for further details 0203 994 7778.
